Inclusion Europe organised the Policy Seminar "Putting citizens at the centre of politics", final event of the New Paths to Inclusion Network project, on 19 November 2015 at the European Parliament.

The seminar was the occasion to learn from success stories of person-centred planning in a large number of countries and settings. We also heard testimonies of persons with disabilities such as Božidar Kobasić from Croatia who used to live in an institution for more than 30 years and now has “successfully started a new life in the community”. Speakers at the Policy Seminar included Jan Jarab, Regional Representative for Europe of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, Annelisa Cottone from the Disability Unit of the European Commission, as well as heads of European-level Disability NGOs, project partners and self-advocates.

Article 19 of the UN CRPD guarantees that all persons with disabilities have the right to live independently and participate in the community. The involvement of families and communities in supporting people with disabilities to live independently is essential for the creation of inclusive societies. Partners from the New Paths to InclUsion Network shared the good practices they collected during the project, proving that person-centred planning is an effective tool in the implementation of the UN CRPD.
